Hey brah, lots of other people who are more knowledgeable than me have already commented here, but I did have thing I wanted to contribute.

As I look at this list of rx meds here I can't help but think that they may be part of the issue.

 

Specifically, you are taking klonopin, Vyvanse and xanax.

Like I said, I am no expert but aren't those things sort of working in opposite directions?

I would think that klonopin and xanax both work to depress your CNS while Vyvanse is stimulating it.

Couldn't that combination be having an effect on your system's cardio output?

 

(Also, possible interactions with the Lamictal, Dapsone, nasonex and paxil- all of which I am less familiar with.)

 

Just a thought, best of luck.

 

The only ones I take everyday are the Lamictal, Klonopin, Nasonex. The others are PRN, I stopped taking the Paxil, shit was making me go nuts.

 

The Vyvanse taken with the others has been approved by my Psychiatrist. She wouldn't prescribe me those without feeling it was safe. It sounds bad I know with the uppers and downers thing but it's not quite that way, all drugs react different with different individuals, with that said the combo I take might kill someone else that it's not right for, depends highly on the individual. I'm not ruling out my combo though having negative effects on my cardio, health, but I will say I've had no Vyvanse for about 2 weeks and haven't noticed much difference, if anything I'm wore cardio wise from not being on the Vyvanse, just prefer not to take it as much as it kills my appetite.

 

Cardio has never been my thing it's always been hard for me, part of my getting back in shape was to start with the things I liked the least so I would be doing it instead of putting it off after the workout when were all not really in the mood for cardio or on to much gear and can't do it at all.

 

I also do not take Xanax and Klonopin at the same time. The Xanax is only prescribed for severe anxiety PRN.

 

I thank you for your concerns with the medication I'm on, as you already mentioned WrkHrd already went over this with the interactions and I have as well with my doctor/doctors.

 

I commend you on your stats in your signature! That 10miles in 1H 6M is very very impressive especially with the rest of your lifts, not very many guys can do that and thats the truth.

I really don't have much of a choice now Loose, I am pretty sure I re torn my lateral meniscus in my right knee and the other feels torn to. The sharp pain I'm feeling doesn't lie. Yesterday my knees felt numb, very strange has never happened before. As I'm typing this they both ache a good amount, sharp pain here and there.

 

Long story short, I helped move my dads 59 apache truck to storage and he just had to do it the hard way, very unsafe way I may add to prove his damn idea method was right which it wasn't. I recommended a flat bed come out to pick it up, told him I'd pay for it, he refused so I said fuck it and moved it any way with him a neighbor myself and a shear amount of brute force… 

 

I feel I paid the price, almost certain their torn, right one torn again……..fuck it, I'm falling apart, not much more to say.

 

The greatest wealth is health.

I swear man if it's not one damn thing its another with my over all health. Good news is this time of year I feel really well mentally! I get depressed around fall through winter and its hard to deal with, especially with these symptoms I'm experiencing and trying hard to get back in shape. 

 

To any doctors on this site please don't be offended by this but it seems every doctor I see theres 3 or 4 follow ups then when there done making enough money off me and raping the insurance company (debatable) it's " take some ibuprofen for a couple weeks and oh well you now need to see a lung specialist". I mean shit can I just get prescribed 1 inhaler to see if it makes a big difference if it is exercised induced asthma. It just pisses me off, they're seriously more worried about malpractice and lawsuits and shit for prescribing me one freaking damn inhaler just to see if it helps me any!

 

Theres going to be some very serious lifestyle changes this year guys! I mean everything diet, cardio, full 5-6 days a week breaking down and building back up the muscle!

 

Iv'e fucking had it! If I drop dead trying to improve my life then it's better that way than dying and failing to try, thats honestly the way I see it.

 

It's very very frustrating seeing a husband and wife with there 2 kids go running/jogging the same mile loop I do and do it 3 times none stop, where I struggle to do it once! I do go faster but still, that just a'int right. 

 

I got to get this straightened out, I shouldn't be mad at the doctors it probably routine procedure for all the damn follow ups but damn it's pissing me off! I don't have much time either in 1 month my PPO insurance plan is cut/over and is going to be a nightmare with my health issues finding a new insurance plan/company, doctors changing.

 

Going to clean the gym area up, greased, oiled etc. and cyclone rake the yard for the final time, it's 82 out in the shade, winters over and so is my rant.    

 

I hear you on it being very frustrating and all you want to know is what, if anything, is wrong and how to fix it. I am in school now getting a degree in the medical field, not a doctor, but respiratory therapist. I think seeing a pulmonologist  is the best plan. He/she should order a PFT (pulmonary function test) they take an hour and can get you your answer for asthma. You used to smoke so it is not out of the possibility you have COPD, despite being young you could have alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency, which could explain your young age and the possible issues. A simple test can answer all these things. 

 

The fact that you were not just handed an inhaler before getting your heart checked out is a good thing. Beta-agonists are known to cause tachycardia, arrhythmias, high BP and are contraindicated/precautioned in those with cardiac issues. Despite the frustration those Docs were attempting to do no harm in this case.

 

Please keep us updated once you see the Pulmonologist

I briefly researched what you are suggesting, I will look into finding a pulmonologist in my area, insurance covered etc.

Looks to be more of the direction I should have gone a while ago, but seeing the cardiologist was good, I needed to see him for my LDL so that was good.

 

I'll be honest I'm pissed off that my issues are not resolved. I know and accept its trial and error to some extent with the doctors and testing, just trying to get my life in order is all, I can't live a life like this, and my knees possibly being re torn is just pushing me to my limits, has me questioning a lot of things.

 

Good to hear you're getting your degree, thats awesome man! Iv'e considered going back to school, after my health issue's and some other things are sorted out/done, Especially the camaro restoration I've got going on, thats been insanely stressful almost wishing I bought a new 6th Gen honestly. I don't know whats in store for me, just living my life.

 

Will let y'all know how things turn out here in the next couple weeks, maybe the pulmonologist can help explain why the hell my veins don't pop out any more, almost if they have gone dormant on me, I know thats not normal.

I can only imagine how frustrated it is to not know EXACTLY what the problem is.

Yeah champ......hang in there. But you must get your body right before rigorous training to continue. Stay focused on getting better and on the hits you keep getting in life, as good ole Rocky said "life isn't about how hard you hit, but how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward......that's how winning is done!'

And on knees, evolution fucked us over with them. Since I was 17, I have had four major knee ops, all on the same bloody knee.
